Using Sign Language With Infants

Hayleigh, our 11 month old, just started signing yesterday!!  I am a huge advocate of sign language, as it has greatly helped with communication.  However, I don’t really push it.

When Hayleigh turned 6 months, I began to slowly introduce a couple signs.  But with two older toddler sisters, I just didn’t have as much time to be as consistent as I had wanted.

Well, little did I know, but Hayleigh was picking up on the signing!  Yesterday, out of the blue, she was signing “drink”, “milk” and “eat/food”.

I did manage to capture a couple videos of Hayleigh signing in action.  Warning, they are a bit shaky and not great quality.  But hey, what can you expect with three kids, ages three and under?!  :)

Here are two videos of Hayleigh signing.  If you can’t see them, you can watch them here and here.


Here is the video I took of Brylee and Cambri signing last year.  I believe Cami was about 15 months and Brylee 28 months old.  They look so little!!!  Sigh.  Time flies…
